1573 Haight St.
According to Indian thought, we have seven centers of spiritual power on our bodies called chakras, starting from our reproductive organs all the way up to the top of our heads. Each chakra has a specific color, power, and assortment of crystals associated with it. For instance, if you're feeling tired and unmotivated, you should focus on your third chakra, the solar plexus, which is located on your belly button, by surrounding yourself with yellow and gold crystals, like citrine, amber, and yellow jasper. There's certainly no shortage of stores that sell crystals along Haight, but if you're in the market for some chakra aligners, The Love of Ganesha is your best bet. Not only are they reasonably priced, but the store is littered with informative signs that tell you where each crystal is from and what its properties are. If lying on the ground and meditating with crystals on your chakras doesn't appeal to you, you can get your crystal wire-wrapped into a pendant to wear as a necklace or a keychain. The Love of Ganesh also has a "meditation room" — a bhatik-covered tent that looks like a miniature Nepalese yurt — where you can stretch out and get zen.
